Hong Kong to Vietnam Race

HONG KONG TO VIETNAM RACE 2019

STARTS 15 AND 16 OCTOBER

The Hong Kong to Vietnam Race 2019 is organised by the RHKYC and will be run under the auspices of RORC and the RORC Offshore Special Regulations.

It is a challenging, predominantly downwind, 673nm fast passage to Nha Trang, on the south-eastern coast of Vietnam - the race is recognised as a qualifying race for the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.

2019 will mark the ninth edition of this biennial Race which is the longest Category One offshore race in Asia. The Race was first run in 1996 and then regularly since 2004. The current race record of 42h 17m 24s was set in 2015 by Syd Fischer’s Ragamuffin 100 at an average VMG of 15.8 knots.

A popular tourist destination in its own right, Nha Trang also offers a great provisioning point for boats intending to continue on to other seasonal sailing events in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Australia.

The Race is a constituent event of China Coast Race Week, together with China Coast Regatta.
